Freeman Offered New Deal

City have offered Luke Freeman a new contract, head coach Lee Johnson confirmed today.

The winger’s current deal is set to expire this summer and Johnson admits there has been interest from other clubs for Freeman’s services.

However, the City boss is desperate to keep the tricky midfielder, who joined the club in 2014 from Stevenage.

“I want Luke to stay,” the head coach said at his weekly press briefing.

“We’ve already offered Luke a very good new deal and he was on the verge of signing. Hopefully he will do.

“In the Championship he has been getting better and better. The fact is he’s out of contract in the summer and clubs will be interested.

“We would be delighted if Luke signs the new deal.”

Freeman has made 121 appearances for the club, playing a key role in the double-winning campaign of 2014/15, and has scored ten times.
